A report presented by a research firm CIRP unveiled that the tech giant Apple has dragged more Android users in the most recent months more than the other parts of the year. As per the survey, more than 75% of iPhone users and buyers have switched from the iPhone 5s, SE, 5c, 6, 6s and Plus models, and astonishingly 20% of consumers admitted to having switched from Android smartphones.
CIRP partner and co-founder Josh Lowitz said that, “the good news for Apple is that relative to earlier quarters, they attracted a higher percentage of iPhone buyers from Android phones,” he added, “in the past three-quarters before the June 2017 quarter, Android owners had represented 14% to 17% of iPhone buyers. With lengthening upgrade cycles and a growing percentage of owners with the most recently released models, continued platform switching will be important to the success of the next iPhones.”
With the much-praised demand of iPhones among the Android users, many iPhone buyers also upgraded their handsets to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in the most previous quarter ending in June. The figure of iPhone 7 or 7 Plus buyers jumped to 81% as compared to the last year which was 70%.
In addition, old iPhone models continued in the market with a great sale and the most latest model 6s caught 34% buyers throught the US last year. In the year 2017, the figures come out to be 19% only. And ahead the release of iPhone 8, buyers are still purchaisng the latest smartphone models of Apple.
Let’s see how many Android users move to the upcoming flagship iPhone 8 this year.
